At Wodensborough Ormiston Academy we have a uniform, which must be worn at all times. Students are also expected to bring a bag to carry books and equipment.

Our uniform

  • Black blazer with school logo (compulsory).
  • Black standard trousers or black skirt (must be knee length or longer, no leggings).
  • Plain white shirt long or short sleeved.
  • Academy tie.
  • All black shoes with black laces (no trainers).
  • Black jumper with royal blue and yellow stripe and school logo (optional).
  • Dark plain socks.
  • A bag for equipment.

The wearing of ‘hoodies’, coats or other non-regulation sweaters, is NOT acceptable.


Students are not allowed to wear excessive or expensive jewellery at Wodensborough Ormiston Academy. This is not only to prevent the loss of valuable items but also to encourage neatness in dress and appearance. If studs are worn, you are only to wear one pair (earlobes only). Nose studs or any other visible body piercings are not permitted. All jewellery must be removed for PE due to healthy and safety regulations. You cannot use plasters to cover up piercings.

False nails and nail varnish are also not allowed due to health and safety regulations.

PE kit

All students must wear the official PE kit. This includes:

  • Wodensborough shorts or tracksuit bottoms (including the correct academy socks if shorts are worn).
  • Wodensborough polo neck t-shirt or hoodie.
  • Suitable footwear with tied laces.

All of the items of schoolwear and sports kit above are available from:
